Here you can talk about and reccommend artists you've heard that aren't that famous yet but you love. Give us links to YouTube videos if possible.

Those Dancing days A Swedish band: not sure whether they're quite as cheesy as Abba, but that's for you to decide. This is a song called Home Sweet Home. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=3AgTAS-MJJQ

Unicorn Kid A 16-year old guy whose music sounds like it came straight off a Gameboy but with this awesome twist to it. My fave one of his is called All I want: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=g1B2J0Zpgxo

First heard them both on XFM

Kerli, an Estonian singer, has a very unique sound to her music and her music blends a lot of genres. Even if you don't like all of her songs there is probably one song off her first album you may enjoy.

YouTube vid. As always I don't understand what is going on in it but I like the song. Her website linked above plays some of her other songs.

Frou Frou: Not too sure how old this band/collaboration is but if you haven't listened to them you're missing out. They did Holding out for a Hero on the Shrek Two CD.

Within Temptation: Like Nightwish? Well I'm afraid their lead singer's vocal power doesn't quite match up with Tarja's this group has some pretty good stuff. Not exactly a new band though largely unheard of at least on this side of the pond.

(EDIT: just watched the end of that last Frou Frou vid...Um interesting no comprende (I never really understand music videos anyway) so I relinked the song to a lyrics only version. and added Within Temptation)

That's all I have for now. Enjoy.

i LOVE Frou Frou :love:
I believe theyve only done one album (Details, which is a FANTASTIC album) and a couple other songs for films, such as the one on the Shrek 2 OST.

and if you like Frou Frou, take a gander at the singer, Imogen Heap's solo stuff. I adore this womans voice and her songs are just lovely. Headlock is a particularly great song and i love the video, altho it is admittedly weird, but most music videos are :P also give the song "Goodnight and Go" a search. Its a very feel good love song :D

I love that song. Who'd know that a song about people's heads falling off could be so beautiful?

EDIT:
Here's another, a punchy, energetic song that's odd but really cool. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0mBhSeejA4

I've been meaning to get hold of some MGMT. i duno the name of the song but i always remembered hearing the intro of it, and i heard it again on the final episode of Skins series 2 and found it was by them, so now i HAVE to get their album or something xD JUST for that one song and in the hopes that the rest will be just as cool!
